Military experience brings unique stressors that can impact parenting in service member and veteran families. This chapter presents an overview of potential concerns and situations that may be faced by service member and veteran parents, their children, partners, and loved ones that are important for mental health professionals to consider when working with military families. Topics such as how children and families may respond to deployment, transitioning to civilian life, and interacting with a parent who has experienced a traumatic event are discussed. Practical suggestions for parents and areas of possible assessment and intervention for clinicians are also discussed. A list of parenting resources for military families is provided for additional information.
